Sometimes it feels like the world is moving faster than we can catch up. Every day, we hear about the problems and challenges that face us – environmental disasters, economic inequality, social injustice, disease, and more; it’s as though the media has jump leads on our nervous system and consciousness.

Feeling overwhelmed and powerless in the face of all that chaos is natural. But there's a deeper truth that we sometimes forget: we have the power within ourselves to shape our own experiences and reality. We don't have to be passive bystanders. Instead, we can engage with the world and all its mysteries in a way that connects us to something deeper – something ancient and wise, something magical. This might mean exploring practices and traditions that have guided people for centuries, like yoga, dancing, chanting, moon cycles, goddess worship, women’s circles, divination, or simply connecting to mother earth. By tapping into these feminine ways, we can unlock our inner power, find our flow and tap into unlimited possibilities to start living life with purpose and meaning again. Let's take a moment and ask ourselves whether we have lost something valuable as we evolved into modern society. It's not about turning back time; there is so much goodness to be had in recent technologies, but it’s about rediscovering the essential parts of us that have been left behind. We've become out of touch with the natural rhythms of life and forgotten how to listen to our inner wisdom and trust our intuition and the power of our inner spirit. It’s time for us to take a deep dive and do the inner work to reconnect with these ancient ways. It might not be the easiest thing for some that are used to being in their masculine energy of go go go! But if we can find time to sit silently and face any numbness or darkness, we can begin to find deeper meaning in our lives. But we must have courage and be willing to push past our fears and insecurities. And face what is hidden in the shadow. Our shadow. We all have one, and reconnecting with the feminine will help to shine a light on this.

It's not about giving up the modern world but finding balance and peace. You only have to look at your external world and ask yourself whether you are happy with what you are experiencing. If the answer is no, take time for some self-reflection and inner work. Our outside world is a mirror reflection of what is going on in our internal world. When we realise how everything is connected and see the beauty in the world around us, it's like a light bulb turns on inside us. Suddenly, we understand that we have the power to shape our reality and make a difference. And it all starts with our thoughts, feelings and emotional landscape. But this isn't just about us – it’s about our entire planet. Taking responsibility for our actions and being mindful of our choices can lead to a healthier world. We're in the midst of a major transition, but we have a choice in how we approach it. We can either sit back and let things happen to us, or we can actively take part in creating the world we want to live in. The choice is ours, and it's up to us to choose wisely.

Some ancient feminine practices that can support you in reconnecting with your inner self: Goddess worship – Many ancient cultures worshipped a female deity, often associated with motherhood, creation, and fertility. Herbal medicine – Women were the primary caregivers in society, and they often used plant-based remedies to heal ailments and promote wellness.

Birthing rituals – Ancient women often gathered together to support each other during childbirth and to perform rituals to honour the mother and new baby

Moon cycles – Women were keen observers of the natural world and often tracked the moon cycle to mark time and plan important events.

Dance and music – Many cultures are celebrated through dance and music, often led by women as a form of expression and community-building. Storytelling – Women have always been the keepers of cultural myths and stories, passing on wisdom and knowledge from generation to generation.

Sacred sexuality – Some ancient societies celebrated the beauty and power of human sexuality and included it in their spiritual practice Women's circles – Women have gathered in small groups for mutual support, celebration, and ritual for thousands of years. These circles often provided a safe space for women to share their wisdom, stories, and creativity. Divination – Women have long been seen as the keepers of intuition and the ability to read signs and symbols. Practices such as tarot, astrology, and other forms of divination have been a part of women's spirituality and empowerment for centuries. These practices vary greatly among different societies and cultural contexts, and there are more. The feminine is rising, and today, we are, once again, holding women's circles, storytelling, dancing, singing, looking at ways to hone our intuition and connection with self – taking up divination, working with the moon's cycles, and connecting with the Goddess energies. Let us return to our ancient ways and the wisdom of our ancestors. Let us reconnect with the earth and honour the cycles of nature—and mother earth. Let us be still and listen to our inner voice, for it is only by doing so that we can create a more conscious, compassionate, and kinder world for ourselves and future generations. Let us return to SHE. Take the 90-sec quiz here and find out how intuitive you really are.
